CIRCE is participating in the European CIRC4Life project, funded by the European Commission as part of the Horizon 2020 programme. The project seeks cooperation between companies and consumers to foster more sustainable and more profitable business lines.
CIRC4Life is funded to the tune of 7.2 million euro by European funds and led by the Nottingham Trent University. The project is working on three new circular economy business models, which will be developed throughout the value chain of products from the electrical and electronic equipment sector (LED lighting, tablets…) and the agro-food sector (meat supply chain, agriculture…). The international consortium is completed by eight industrial companies, four research centres, two universities and a group of experts in European policies (think tank), one of which is the CIRCE, ALIA, Recyclia and Indumental Recycling.
